I grew up in a diverse town called Lakewood, NJ. I have been working with people since 1994 beginning in the school system with students with behavioral and learning disabilities for 10 years (Howell BD OF Education) I worked for the state of NJ as a Youth Worker with juveniles that were classified serving time . I have nearly 10 years experiencing working at the Emergency Children's Shelter/Shore Youth Center. in Tom's River. Since 2006 I have been working at a MICA residential group home for men. I have worked these jobs because i wanted to make a difference in the lives of at risk youth, in many ways it's like a spiritual calling. Helping families during touch and challenging times has rarely been a problem for me in nearly 30 years, i look forward to going to work. Numerous times i worked 1 to 1 as a mentor providing wraparound services to youth and families in the community. As an former athlete i understand the true meaning of teamwork. In my spare time i write poetry translating the art of of professional artist as well as for my future poetry book. My personal goal is to establish my own outreach program in which i can provide services to the homeless population mobily , i assisted as a volunteer at Tent City in Lakewood. I am trained in basic First Aide/CPR, medication monitoring, safety, fire equipment , conflict resolution and many ongoing trainings annually.

I'm a seasoned veteran when it comes to caring for people with and without disabilities. I have a true passion for caring for others with 15 years experience. I have experience in pharmaceutical, companionship, hospice care, home care, running medical appointments as well as errands and shopping. I'm very reliable, compassionate and a trustworthy caregiver. I'm available seven days a week during the day and night. I love interacting with people playing puzzles, cards, going out to movies with the clients. I am fingerprinted and background checked by the State of New Jersey with credentials and references. Caring for others makes me feel so good at the end of the day. Knowing I can make somebody's day special is a blessing.
